Where are we today ?
Ok will not tell you how nice it was here ok? 39 f this morning at 4:30 am so had to wear a hoody and t shirt with my shorts. But people still heading to the hot springs at 6 am, house coats though. Cold yeah. But then the sun came up and got nice and comfy,74f .
About 8:30 we headed off to the Wednesday "Swap" meet (flea Market) in Calexico California, right across the border from Mexicali, Mexico. Read the city names and you know where we are! Too cool, almost like a going to Mexico. All the signs are in Spanish, most of the vendors are from Mexico and the prices are awesome. Not fancy, pretty junky in fact but some great deals to be had if you care to rummage around. But we sure had a lot of fun for a few hours.

We followed a few others here and agreed to meet at Carl's Jr, next door at 11 am for a bite to eat. After a few hours walking in the sun and heat we were ready for a snack. Suzie had a chicken cheese Quesadia and me a beef, meat, bean and cheese burrito, hit the spot and we had an awesome fun time.
